A village with church, school, gen. store, hotel and
mineral springs.  Located on the Pioneer Trail, once
served rest, recreation & supplies to the weary
traveler.  This relay center played an important
part to the early settlers & wagon trains in
developing this great county.  People still visit here,
drink from these springs and tell how their
forefathers told it to them.
